Stretch marks and scarring

Unlike the facial-like qualities of the Skin Rejuvenation and Collagen Boost treatment, removing stretch marks and scars require a deep level of penetration from the Dermapen. Stretch marks are basically skin tears, similar to surgical or burn scars, where the skin is more stringent and thick. With the use of Dermapen, the microneedling process is more potent due to the puncturing of denser tissue. Your skin will eventually heal and appear smoother and less agitated. Though the duration of the procedure and results vary from person to person and the severity and size of their stretch marks or scars, the improvement does become visible over time.

After your treatment

Things to avoid: Any activity related to extreme heat or sweat. This includes being under the sun for long periods and going to the sauna or gym. Things to do: Keep your skin clean and moisturised. This means no makeup or scrubs or heavy masks for the next 48 hours. Use a gentle cleanser to clean the face, and follow up with moisturiser and sunblock. Also, consult your practitioner for a personalised skincare regimen. Stay hydrated. Drink lots of water for the first few days of treatment as this will quicken the healing process. Cold water could also help in easing the post-procedure swelling. Also, it's nice to be hydrated, in general! Eat clean. As stated above, it's best to stay away from processed foods and instead eat food loaded with vitamins and minerals to aid in the healing process.
